Kroy Biermann re-signs with Falcons

The versatile defensive end is coming back to Atlanta after spending a little time on the open market. Yes, Kroy Biermann has returned. Contract terms are not immediately available. The Falcons have re-signed DE Kroy Biermann: http://t.co/CG2V0gopW1 #RiseUp pic.twitter.com/aIJkwYEXYG — Atlanta Falcons (@AtlantaFalcons) March 18, 2015 This is likely to be a relatively low-cost deal, given the lack of reported interest for Biermann on the open market.
